When asked if Price said anything to him, Hallion said: “He might not have said anything, but he certainly gave enough body language to insinuate that he was [ticked] off.”
What a piece of garbage. Should be fined, suspended, whatever, but he's union so he'll skate.
I think it's extreme to say Hallion should be fired. People make mistakes every day and an employer needs to allow for that. Having said that he should be disciplined and a short suspension is appropriate. Scott's point about the ump having a "heightened obligation to turn the other cheek" is absolutely spot on.
I just don't understand why umpires would want to seek this stuff out. Getting yelled at is not fun and as an umpire it's going to happen plenty. There is no reason to engage a player/manager/coach proactively. If you can't handle a dirty look and some negative body language you're in the wrong line of work.
It's people like you that make me think unions may actually be necessary after all.
It's unions like the MLB Umpires that make me sympathetic to union busting.
